Bandage contact: A bandage contact lens is used to help corneal abrasions heal and tp keep the patient more comfortable. If this has healed you no longer need the contact lens at night. Cloudy vision sometimes is caused by scarring or swelling of the. Corneal tissue, occasionally the contact lens clouds the vision.

Yes: As the eye heals after an abrasion, vision can be blurry. In addition, the lens can get cloudy as well due to medications and mucous. It is safe to sleep in approved bandage lenses. When wearing a contact lens after an abrasion, it is important to attend all your eye appointments.
